I agree that questions should be posed to Board candidates, as well, but
I'd prefer they remain business/legal related, and leave technical issues
to the Council. I believe this was the intended relationship of the two
entities within the JSF, and while there may be overlap with regard to
participants, I think line should be clearly defined.

As DW first mentioned (and others followed) in their Council "debate"
question answers, trademark and other related issues are business related,
not technical, and therefore should be handled by the Board rather than
the Council.

Well. I guess I'm probably just echoing the feelings of others, but I
wanted to get it on the list. :)
